Manchester United target Tahith Chong has made it pretty clear he has his heart set on a move to Old Trafford.

The 16-year-old is set to depart Feyenoord this summer, but while United are yet to officially announce him, he's given all the indications that a deal will be done soon.

In fact, Chong, who has been at the Eredivisie club since he was 10, has already been pictured in the club's training gear.

The photos come from a Twitter fan account, but the player himself has now updated his own Instagram bio to include: "Player of Manchester United."

"I start in Manchester in the A1 [academy] and may sometimes take part in Manchester United Under-21s," he has told the Manchester Evening News.

Dropping hints 

"I’ve been there a few times and I am definitely impressed by the club. United have good accommodation for youth players and it is up to me to make that step."

The Red Devils' academy is undoubtedly one of the Premier League's best, with graduates including Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, and David Beckham, so it looks like Chong is in the right place.

Jose Mourinho seems determined to silence those who claim he doesn't give young players a chance, but while Chong isn't expected to be a first-team player for quite some time, he certainly looks like one for the future.

Does Jose Mourinho give young players enough of a chance? Have your say in the comments.
